BJP welcomes Bombay HC order allowing entry of women in Haji Ali Dargah

New Delhi, Aug 26 (UNI) The BJP today welcomed judgment of the Bombay High Court, which ordered to allow women to enter the inner sanctum of the famous Haji Ali Dargah in the South central Mumbai.
"Some Muslims women activists were fighting for it for a long time. This fight is about women rights… It's a court judgment.... indeed, it is worth welcoming,'' ruling party's general secretary Shrikant Sharma told mediapersons here.
Earlier in the day, while passing an order, a division bench of the court comprising Justices V M Kanade and Revati Mohite held that the ban on women's entry was a violation of Articles 14 (equality), 15(prohibits discrimination based on religious lines), 19 (ensures certain freedoms) and 21 (protection of personal life and liberty).
